every day gets a little closer


i walk by the meadows

the sunlight softly falling on my face

you walk on the streets

an umbrella protecting you from the rain

i write in the orange glow of my lamp 

you work in the bright lights of your office

i live a solitary life

you, a life in the midst of people

 

and yet, as we sleep

in our own rooms

put apart by distance

by fate

by God

you remember me 

and i remember you

i hear your breath

you smell my skin

i talk to you

you stroke my arm 

every day gets a little closer

 

the cleavages of time and space

and the ruptures in our being

are healed

as every day gets a little closer
